Cake for Charlie

Transient

Los Angeles-based UPPERCASE reader Sarah Hodges has just launched a new website called "Cake for Charlie" featuring her wrapping paper designs. A graphic designer by trade, Sarah is leaving client work behind and "branching out and having some fun!"

Cake for Charlie papers are designed in Los Angeles and printed in Pasadena, CA. Keeping operations local, environmentally friendly and made in the USA is important to me. I live in Los Angeles with—in order of size —my husband, two kids, two dogs, a guinea pig and two beta fish. After studying art history and semiotics at Brown University, I received my MFA in graphic design from CalArts. I am a New York City girl gone west and I'm always surprised that I've stayed. I guess it's grown on me.
